Mmmm sounds delicious

Turkey casserole with winter veg, chipolatas, stuffing balls and cranberry jelly



So the turkey’s lost in transit, someone spilled the stuffing or you’re just doing a spot of Christmas camping. Well, never fear, because thanks to the Christmas Dinner HotCan everyone can enjoy a piping-hot, pre-packed Christmas meal.

When it’s time for your festive feast, simply remove the rubber cap, pierce the holes, open the insulated can and try not to drool on yourself as a totally safe exothermic reaction heats up your Christmas chow in about 12 minutes. We’ve heard of convenience food but this is ridiculous. Mmm…Turkey casserole with all the trimmings.

Ha Ha - Love it! Perhaps I'll get one of these for each family member instead of slaving over the Turkey!

not as cheap as the Christmas pot noodles they were selling off at asda for 20p

Thanks. That's my Xmas dinner sorted.

The chilli bean one of these is really tasty............thanks OP. Ordered 4. They keep for ages.....

Postage was £1.95, but there is the possibility of 8% Quidco...........

need 10 for the family.. sorted!!!!!

Sounds awful

Better than the chicken in a can

Why would anyone bother with Christmas dinner in a can??? Vile!

Does this have the Samaritans' number on the packaging by any chance?

At £7.64, I'd expect it to have the phone number of a trendy wine bar ;).

Nice gimmick, but for that money you could get a pretty tasty ready meal.
Probably even get a cheap solid fuel stove on ebay with fuel, a pan from freecycle and cook said ready meal for a much tastier solution to eating where there wouldn't traditionally be a cooker for less money :).


This was my 'Christmas dinner' last year:

No, really! I did have a few other bits, but on a budget and a diet.
Usually cook a big one for a few friends, but now living elsewhere in the country so couldn't justify the cost or calories.

As I posted at the time:

To be fair, I did have some other food later. Finished off a bag of … To be fair, I did have some other food later. Finished off a bag of doritios with melted cheese (3 bowls worth), a stuffing ring thing with doggy-bag from someone else's Christmas dinner, 1/2 of a silly expensive (but incredibly tasty) Morrisons tiramisu, a pack of weight watchers cake bars and some chocolates, profiteroles from aforementioned doggy bag etc.I was going to get a big lump of meat, then started assembling other stuff... then realised I shouldn't be spending loads etc, so put it all back (bar the stuffing ring) and replaced with above £1 burger.

You say you were on a diet?!

P.S Do you ever clean your hob or worktop?

Oatmeal blocks for pud mmmm.......

Badbear: you should see me when I am NOT on a diet ;).
But; heh; it was Christmas!... to both things. No one else around in the shared house, so wasn't going to clean up straight away, especially when it's other people's mess :).
(Should note that a rustlers burger really isn't too bad on calories - the rest of the stuff, however, was.)

Made a bit more effort this year and got down to under 12% bodyfat, which I'm happy with... though once again due to the wonders of self-employment, haven't got a massive amount of cash to spend... so was eyeing up the 79p burgers in Aldi :P.
(If another housemate doesn't go back to Ireland for Christmas, might cook something properly.)

It'll be like having Christmas school dinners all over again.

Ah, shared house. Say no more! I wouldn't bother cleaning it either!

I once had garlic butter kievs with mash and veg on Christmas day. It was just as enjoyable.

I just had a pizza the one year when I was still too **** to drive to my mother's after the night before.

Come to think of it, when I was a student I just had fish fingers, chips and beans the one year.

I had a long cycle ride and then a pizza last Christmas.

Make up your own rules for Christmas day folks. Doesn't have to be dry turkey and soggy Brussels with a large helping of relatives.

I also gave a girl my heart, but the very next day she gave it away

I am hoping the weather's nice to get out on the bike and burn some calories - or if it's not, that other people aren't around and I can stick the turbo trainer in the living room and watch some films while making up for the food a bit!

If they are working Christmas day perhaps?

This is an awful deal so why are people voting it hot when it's sad and overpriced? The last thing you want to do is eat this drivel (unless you are stuck up a mountain or camping). Firebox seem to aim their products at those who have got no friends and have more money than sense(!) Avoid with a sterilized barge pole(!)

Sounds good for me as we expect to be spending christmas in the Cairngorms! Has Heston Bloominhell heard of this yet i wonder?
